Service Description

With this function, you may use a term to describe the nature of your service. This will increase your service’s visibility when potential customers conduct searches on HostRooster using keywords related to your business. Metadata in voiceover services, for instance, may include such details as the language of the voiceover, the voice actor’s accent, and the format of the final file received by the customer. Depending on the specifics of your service, there may be restrictions on the types of details you provide.


Through this feature, customers can place bulk orders of a single service. If you’re selling logo designs and your base logo design service is $10, a customer who requires two logos can buy it twice (for $20).

Contradictions Cancel Each Other Out

The term “Mutual Cancellation” refers to the fact that either the buyer or the seller of an order might request that it be canceled. Cancellation of the order is contingent upon mutual agreement between the parties. If the other party to a mutual cancellation doesn’t respond within two days, the order will be canceled automatically. The number of days left before an order is canceled will be displayed on the progress bar, and the buyer and seller will be able to rescind the cancellation request at any time before the transaction is canceled. As soon as a transaction is finalized, it is no longer possible to request a mutual cancellation.


An order page is a document that is established between a buyer and a seller when a service is purchased.

Hide Profile

When you’re on vacation, too busy, or just need a break, you may hide your profile and inform your customers of your whereabouts and when you’ll be back in the office.

Center for Conflict Resolution
If you’re having trouble with an order, the Resolution Center is here to help. Before contacting Customer Support, please try to resolve the issue with the other party through direct messages.


You can choose to enable this feature on your service for buyers to leave comments and feedback as you work (until the customer is pleased).
